Valuable general information on conducting a successful VBS as well as these two specific curricula:
“Galactive Starveyors” (Lifeway) and “Maker Fun Factory” (Group Plublishing)
If your church wants to use one of these curricula options, Dawson will pay the entire cost of the curriculum for your church, including the “starter kit” and leaders materials. All you have to do is tell me which one you want and how many copies you need of leaders materials and we will order it and have it shipped to you.
We hope you will take advantage of these opportunities to help your VBS have a huge impact on the lives of many kids in your communities.

These are exciting Days!
We are challenged to reach the world that God has placed us among!
We are the workers God is sending to work in His Field!
We are seeing unprecedented numbers of people groups come to Maine in these days.
At the same time, God is bringing personnel to Maine who have cross-cultural skills and who love the Lord.
Is God calling you to be a neighbor to the world around you!
